is standing by to go on the record. greta: rush limbaugh is not happy about it. rush limbaugh in his own words, next. and senator tom daschle got bumped from the cabinet for tax problems, so why is he often at the white house with president obama? we will tell you what senator daschle says, and is something of a little bit too cozy going on? and our national debt is spiralling out of control, and getting worse by the second, literally exploding, but there is something you do not know. caution. your head might explode when we tell you this, but, first, we are not surprised president obama needs a vacation. the town hall meetings. >> we could have a high school debating team come up with a better bill than this in 30 days. >> legislation is going to cost more than $1 trillion. how are we going to afford that? >> might out of pocket costs -- my out-of-pocket costs. greta: councilwoman maxine waters just had a town hall, and there was some name-calling. >> we are going to do everything that we can to organize -- neanderthals ççwe are going to say to prest obama, "we want you to use every weapo
with the moderates, but 75% of the republicans really sided with the rush limbaugh side of the party, and i think not only is this bad for republican prospects in terms of trying to change the demographics, which are increasingly moving against them. this is another issue the republicans had no compelling reason for voting the way they were voting. >> i think there were real reasons. republicans kept asking the question about the wise latina comment because they never got a full answer. if they had gotten a full answer, perhaps that might have changed things. certainly republicans have had problems appealing to certain groups but you're not going to appeal to any group whether it's african-americans, hispanic-americans or anybody else by selling out your principles. voters don't respect that. >> but it was the fact that the republicans seem to harp on such an insignificant thing, the wise latina comment, when sam alito had made similar comments and didn't have much else to do to go after her in the hearing. so they're the ones that elevated race much more so than the democrats did. >> again -- >>
limbaugh, all these people saying the birthers are out of their mind. kind of interesting. we'll see what happens. willie geist, i swear you have made broadcasting history again. >> barnacle sits over here during way too early, which is distracting enough in its own right, but he's critiquing the show as it goes. telling me, no good, i won't make it. >> joe and i realize we can say we are here at the beginning exactly. it's like being present when milton beryl came out. >> or the big bang. >> a big story, bill clinton touching down. we begin with breaking news. former president bill clinton is in north korea on behalf of the obama administration. he's trying to negotiate the release of those two jailed american journalists. reporters euna lee and laura ling sentenced to 12 years of hard labor for illegally crossing the border. adrian joins us live from beijing -- she's not with us right now. we'll try to get back to her. pat buchanan, let me ask you. what do you think is going on here. can you remember a precedent for something like this? >> i think jimmy carter -- jesse jacks
angry mobs. >> reporter: some on display get stoked by the provocative megaphones of rush limbaugh who went so far as accusing democrats of wanting to soernlize medicine of nazi germany. >> the obama health care logo is damn close to a nazi swastika logo. >> reporter: to encourage attend, conservative organizers acknowledge they sent e-mail alerts to members but argue the anger is real. >> i think that the politicians should be careful about so easily dismissing this many people showing up and participating in the process. >> reporter: virginia democrat jim moran expects to get an earful. >> funny to be opposed. i don't think it's fine to come in with the objective of disrupting the town hall meetings. >> reporter: for "today," kelly o'donnell, nbc news, washington. >>> for more on the political impact of all of this let's turn to john horowitz, chief washington kornt for cnbc. john, good morning. >> hey, jenna. >> with all the shoving and yells at all the town halls it's hard to get a sense of which side is being heard. how big of an impact will this have on congress when they return
and fox news and rush limbaugh have been their three targets. in the long run, you can't govern that way. and i think it weakens them. it sure doesn't weaken fox news shep. bill: that's for sure. the ratings are in record territory for us. mr. speaker, thanks very much. reappreciate it. >> good to be with you. bill: the dumbest things of the week. there were plenty of things to choose from. we will run them down for you as the factor continues all across the u.s.a. and all around the world. naing onon ud r. weotototatatininci on us cars for everybody anont cfidedence ininin o. caususususlendnds s ve a a a t tcks. ququq n . >> bill: dumbest things of the week. i'm a simple man. i like the concept because it is simple. here now to present the massively dumb radio host faith sally and fox news correspondent julia cuddy. you select add hillary clinton situation but not what she said, what secretary of state clinton said. but what was said about her trip to africa? roll the tape. >> she had done 22 speeches and five interviews and she was exhausted and clearly some would say having
of rush limbaugh whose website compares the reform supporters to nazis. a conservative group that's backing the protest insists the anti-reform movement is there. how do you respobd to the charge that this is all orchestrated and artificial if it's coming from talk show hosts and websites? >> reporter: if that were the case, you wouldn't see the massive turnout. the average person is at work when rush limbaugh is on the radio. >> reporter: out of nowhere, a bystander listening in came up to us to say ditto. >> thank you very much. >> you happen to agree with this gentleman? >> i do. >> reporter: democrats are flexing their grassroots. the former obama volunteers are back in campaign mode. >> we have folks who are anxious about change who love to play the fear card. >> reporter: it's about facts not fear. but time and again, he falsely compared democratic health care proposals to a canadian style universal system. >> the ones coming out the house are not canadian style. you know that? >> universal health care in any way, shape, or form is a bad notion. >> reporter: as for senator j
megaphones out there you have rush limbaugh saying these crazy things like the obama health care symbol looks like a nazi symbol and encouraging further elements of the fringe from believing and stoking crazy rumors. that's a hard thing for any white house to counteract. they've been aggressive about. they are putting out web videos and they have an interactive process in which they ask supporters to let them know about crazy talk that's out there so that they can rebut it. that's not easy. we have a culture as you know 24/7 news through social networks, through cable, through the internet and it's hard for political leaders to try to counter and stay ahead of that. >> there's no control. john harwood, always good to see you, my friend. thank you so much. >>> sarah palin is calling the health care plan evil. she posted her thoughts on her facebook page on friday. she says the america i know and love is not one in which my parents or my baby with down syndrome will stand in front of the death panel so bureaucrats can decide based on a subjective judgment of their level of productivity in socie
's comparing health care reform to a panel of death? rush limbaugh compared it to naziism. is sarah jumping on rush's bandwagon? more lawmakers jumping on the bandwagon. the president asked for the money for four jets. congress double down, decided to allow enough money for eight. recession? deficit anyone? and here's a shocking plane story, a continental flight packed with passenger forced to divert because of rotten weather as if that's not enough of a headache, the people were trapped on the plane overnight at the airport. not allowed off. we're going to talk to one of those passengers. good morning, everyone. i'm contessa brewer. the big story we're watching, divers are in the hudson river trying to recover the bodies of two victims still mising from saturday as mid air collision. nine people in all were killed when a private plane and a sight seeing helicopter collided over the hudson. the bodies of seven people have been pulled from the river. earlier new york city mayor michael bloomberg addressed concerns that crowded airspace should have more restrictions. >> sadly, you know, somet
pressed by the likes of rush limbaugh and cnn's lou dobbs. and that controversy led dobbs to take a very personal swipe at msnbc's rachel maddow. so is some of the cable commentary getting out of line? should there be a line you can't cross without getting fired? and why are we still discussing this skip gates arrest? joining me now, amanda moore, and michelle cottle, senior editor of the new republic. is calling the president a racist simply out of bounds? >> yes. >> and yet, there doesn't seem to be any great uproar about it. >> i don't know. that's the part that surprises me a little. but there's a lot -- i guess it would be funny if it weren't so, and here's a word we've heard a lot of lately, stupid. here is a man who has a white mother. here's a man who was raised by two white grandparents, who obviously adored him and who he adores. here's a man at so-called white culture than glenn beck is, and yet we have to hear this kind of commentary. it's quite remarkable. the only thing i would say about this, there's a long history of people towards african-americans. i was reminded in 185
remember it's time to do the right thing. >> it's interesting, ron, you've got rush limbaugh, he brought up paul wellstone's memorial service in 2002 and said it was a cheerleading session -- >> which is wrong, tamron. >> i'll let you get to t i want to play rush and then alicia and ron, you can talk about this back and forth and who is really using ted kennedy's name. go ahead. let's play it. >> before this week is out, do you remember the wellstone memorial? that was a frat party compared to what's going to happen here. this is going to be something to see. it's going -- they're not going to be able to control themselves. they're going to turn this into the biggest political rally you have ever seen. they can't help themselves. they're leftists. >> ron, i will let you get in on it first. >> i hope rush is wrong. senator kennedy has done many admirable things. i hope rush is wrong and it's not turned into a political rally, but i fear it might be. >> rush, as usual, he's not only wrong, he's incredible crass and disgusting here. the idea senator wellstone when he died, there were eight dif
limbaugh and has the radio host, surprise, surprise, fighting back. what is up? >> what is up? nothing like a good hip-hop battle, is there? jay-z is in a new one now with bill o'reilly and rush limbaugh. the new song comes out next friday. he says it want black versus white, my man, please tell bill owl reilly to fall back and 2010 and that is mild dish but he knows who not to attack or not to retort because the man said had a perpendicular response that requires ear must haves for the kitty, i quote. i remind jay-z it is president obama who once mandated superstition. what? what? no magic negro stuff? what is going on? you're never going to get who might have been a weed smoker among the small pharmacies worth of drugs found, the police -- by the police in neverland mansion, multiple bags of marijuana plus rolling papers. it can't be certain michael jackson himself was toking but if he was, why was wasn't he getting stoned to go to sleep instead of taking the cocktail of prescriptions to get to sleep? lesson for the kids. >> if you're looking for a pharmaceutical combination for sleep and
are being encouraged by the likes of rush limbaugh, whose website compares reform supporters to nazis. but a conservative group that's backing the protest insists the anti-reform movement is real. how do you respond to the charge that this is all orchestrated and artificial if it's coming from talk show host and websites? >> then you wont see the massive turnouts that you're seeing at each and every event. the average person is at work when rush limbaugh is on the radio. >> reporter: a bystander listening in came right up to us and say, ditto. >> you happen to agree with this gentleman? >> i do. >> reporter: democrats are also flexing their grassroots. these former obama volunteers were back in campaign mode. >> i think you have some folks who are very anxious about change who really love to play the fear card. >> reporter: cory says it's about facts, not fear. but time and again, he falsely compared democratic health care proposals to a canadian-style american system. the ones coming out of the house are not canadian style -- >> it's a bad notion in any way, shape or form. >> reporte
beginning when rush limbaugh says, well, we don't want him to succeed, we don't want president obama to succeed. i want him to fail. well, rush limbaugh has an extraordinary audience, and many of them feel very strongly and are influenced by him. they have senator de mint saying well, we got his waterloo on this health care, we can defeat him. well, there are people out there that want to defeat, don't want to see the president succeed. we shall be encouraged that here is a president that's willing to tackle the most difficult issue we are facing and we should give him a chance to do that. but i think the tone has been set there. so you find people who will come in and hijack these meetings for the purpose of expressing that. >> speaking of that, twl their was a heated exchange that happened at a meeting you were speaking at. it wasn't even a meeting on health care. let's just play a little bit of what went down there. >> all right. >> don't come and take advantage of what these individuals have done! you want a meeting with me on health care? i'll give it to you. >> that was after a
civility and discourse. kind of a turnaround for sarah palin. >> yeah. i'm thinking rush limbaugh is saying what is next. >> there's a thought. >> we'll see. i think rush take ha it in him. somewhere in that man is an opportunity. he is right half the time. >> is there some sort of psychological coaching you're doing him? come to civility where we don't talk over each other! otherwise, it ends up as a dance! you do on tv! >> all right. carlos is up next. he has all sorts of thing, including new conservative strategies and silicon valley secrets. a little fun with technology and hope there maybe, the driverless car or synthetic organs, i can't say. contessa with you at 2:00. break after this. but did you know you also get hotel price assurance? it's a one-two punch of savings -- pow! pow! lower hotel booking fees mean you get a lower total price. plus, if another orbitz customer then books the same hotel for less, we send you a check for the difference, automatically. ♪ once you've dealt with the things that come between you... don't let erectile dysfunction get in the way. ♪ viva ♪ vi
limbaugh will be joining me and we will be talking about what's happening at the fcc and clamping down on free speech. we have a diversity czar now at the fcc. this guy will be the key of shutting speech down, talk radio down, people like me, people like you on fox. if you are -- if you are not embracing the new diverse world, which means one opinion, you're done. gretchen: very interesting stuff because of we thought that debate had gone away. >> oh, no. it hasn't even started. gretchen: stick around if you will, glenn because the national debt as you know has reached staggering heights. glenn is going to stick around and weigh in on that topic. bill: a man buys a billboard in the hopes of saving his own life. we will hear from his family straight ahead. gretchen: we're back with glenn beck who is the fox news host and the author of the best selling book common sense. in fact, we were commiserating amongst otherselves earlier in the show wondering if president obama on reading list has common sense. >> not even the book. gretchen: it comes in paperback. it would be easy to just hand i

of the challenges that the republican party has is that republican leaders like sarah palin, like rush limbaugh, are stealing all the headlines. they're the only ones articulating any sort of a coo co-herein message. i think it's the wrong people and one that the american people are rejecting and one democrats would be happy to go against, but until the new leadership finds a new coherent message they'll keep being in the spotlight. >> trent, do you agree she doesn't have a coherent message yet? what does she need to do? >> well, i think what she needs to do is go back and decide what she wants to do. i don't think any of us know. i don't know if she knows, honestly. but as i said earlier, she's got the grounds far foundation because she has a following and does have a voice and has legitimate interest. i disagree with mo. if you look at the messaging from a national stance, four to six weeks, they're pulling even. i don't disagree there are some lightning rods on conservative talk radio but i think the republican party is finding its voice. >> mo, a lot of people -- well, a lot of her speech,
